It was a most demonstratiy* «adi- 
ence that wltnesaed the premiere, 
demonstrating the popularity of the 
actor, the success of the author and 
the hit of the new play. Edward Mil- 
ton Royle the author may well feel 
proud of his success. The Squawman 
is a four-act comedy drama. Mr. Fa- 
versham, of course, has the role of 
Capt Jas. Wynnegate, afterward Jim 
Carston. The scene opens "n an Eng- 
lish garden where the captain learns 
of the disgrace of his kinsman the Eaii 
of Kerhtll. who has embezzled trust 
funds and is unable to make them good. 
Exposure and ruin Is threatened. The 
captain loves the earl's .wife> and to 
shield liiiB'an4-aB«» lMr.fkaB ttw eon- 
sequences "of lieir 1nullMiia*s iBTlme tie 
assumes the charge and leaves Eng- 
land, a fugitive from Ju^ce. 

The scene then changes to a mining 
town in Wymnlnir lAaa'Captatn Wyn- 
negate .Is known . to his - associates as 
Jim Carston and to whom he is an 
IdoL liater It shifts to Jim's ranch 
where the final events take place. Jim 
has married a squaw, but the story 
ends with the death of his wife who 



boy to England to be educated in real 
English fashion. Her simple mind can 
not fathom the reasons and dis sa 
only the separation which she can not 
l>ear. Jim's cousin, the earl, dies after 
a confession of his crime and Ills for- 
tune belongs to Jim for the as king . 

It is a brilliant and daring play. Mr. 
Faversham's part suits him weU. His 
is a strong and manly character, and he 
presents it in a strong and manly fash- 
ion. Mr. Campbell, as Big BUI, made 
a hit in the part. Hla makeup was 
good and he surprised even his friends 
with bla vMd pottiaytl of the roua^ 
western Udlaa. SOIene Johnson was a 
most attractive countess and Mabel

"ITpoa my arriral at Pisagna. a few dayi 
days later, on- AprU 4, wUcfa place I was pass-, 
ing on tbe way to Arlca. tbe last town ot my 
tour, I went ashore in order to enquire Into tbe 
position in reference to my tmnd and the deposit 
made, and learned to my surprise tbat the 
mnoey had been paid orer, on demand, to the 
Pisagna antborlties tbat tbe bondetaolnetnloa 
Plaagua authorities on tbe date on which tbe 
bond had expired. I was InTormed by said au- 
thorities that the l>ond could not be. and could 
not bare been extended under any circumstances. 
On April 13 I embarked on the S.S. ••Loa" for 
Pern, taking all these goods out of Chill. 

"Upon placing the foregoing statement of 
facts t>efore tbe American Consul at Arica, he 
asslated me by applying, thtoogb^a« proper 
channels, for the rerundlag ot the tHW deposit, 
and I rmlTcd in due coocM, a icpir at Xa Fas, 
boUtU. Eneioaed with a letta* ftoai tbe Amer- 
ican UlDlster at SaatlagOk waa a tranHatloa of 
a reply reccired by tha Mlaialcr. ttom Senor 
Ceaar de la Lastia, Oblllmi Uialatcr of Foreign 
ASalm. is which be quoted Art. 17. r*w of 
Deecnber 9S. lasT, part of wbleh reads as fol- 
lows: — "The dcpoilt ot meicbandlse.' coasigned 
to prtrate warehooaes, is also allowed for tbe 
peclod of sU montbs- without prorogation.' Then 
he adds, presumably Itis own interpretation ot 
the law, that 'among such merchandise is in- 
cluded tbat. of theatrical companies' thus dassl- 
fylDg theatrical baggage aa merchandise. This 
Is not the war ta treat thaatileal companies, 
the baggage a< w>l*;j.l »> g l a H l !j li;lat o_ the 
country for a pailaB'aC'Mai>Malaar4MtMr leas, 
nor more. 

As there ate no raHwaya br-wbleh one can 
leave the coaatrr. It 1* ImpocMUe to leare upon 
the day, upon tbe hour, or upon tbe exact min- 
ute prescribed by such an unsatisfactory law. 
This rule appears to me to be Identical with 
that whet* Portia, the Indse. In the declstaa as

I therefore must bow down to tbe ruling of

that this apparent robbery waa leglttauita."

great street pageant with which tlie Menrs.

luring prcunise held ont by that grand spectacle 
was fulfilled to tbe letter. 

The weather was almost ideal drcna weather,

A HawPiaM Far 



Fair 



The success of horse shows COU' 
ducted on the streets during the pest 
two seasons in various cities opens a 
new field for followers of street fairs 
and carnivals. To a conservative 
thinker, to one who has l>een a devout 
follower of the carnival business, there 
can be no doubt but what some new 
Ideas must be put forth to interest 
local parties and that new fields must 
be put forth to Interest this aoaMiinally 
Increasing business. 

When we realize that there are more 
than four times as many street shows 
as compared with three years ago, and 
that thay «m taaUutHtr increasing, 
we eoma to tha eondoaltm that we 
must look to the future mode of con- 
ducting and presenting them. And this 
brings us to the point of which I wish 
to speak briefly; bHM itows in con- 
junction with atreeC falra. 

Carnival managers, why not cut out 
some of the expense of carrying your 
free acts and Inatmct your agents to 
wake up the hinae ahow Idea as a 
drawing attraction? The proposition 
Is well worth the time and money re- 
quired and you wlU find. If your ex- 
perience is along the same line as 
mine, that there is no possible propo- 
sition that you can think of. which 
will Interest, the people and get them to 
talking as a horse show. TIs not the 
amount of the premiums offered in the 
various classes, but the fact that Mr. 
Blank's horse won firs prize over all 
otbam at tha aiow, and so on. The 
best lady rider aboidd receive a pre- 
mium, as well as the prettiest rig or 
turnout.

truthfully state that In his several 
yeara* woric tor atraafc fialni ka aever 
saw a more enftanlaalB gaXhailag. At 

Clinton, ind., a city of 4,5(K> people, 
the aggregate prizes amounted to less 
than WiO, divided into eight classes. 
The 7"ttt oC Om Xium,tmtf attuid- 
ance^ eattmated Iqr eonaervatlve par- 
ties, reached between six and eight 
thousand people. The attractions, 
which were booked indei>endently, 
consisted of a merry-go-round. Hall of 
Fire. Electric Wonderland, Vaudeville, 
Circus. Plantation, two platform shows 
and the local band. All did a big busi- 
ness. The managers were unanimous 
In telling the writer that their receipts 
of three days exceeded any previous 
week's stand. . ; ^. 

The writer has ftnmd hy experience 
that committees are more apt to con- 
sider a proposition of the above na- 
ture than the straight street fair, as 
is generally put on at the present time.

It is a Big Advantage for Streetmen to buy goods from N. Shurc^, 
Co., because you can buy everything you need under one 
roof, and every line at the right price* 

Pocket Knives we sell cheaper than an ezdnnve cntlety house. Jewelfy cheaper than a regular je^iruil^|Ju$^^ 
Watches cheaper than an exclusive watch house; and every other linejthe same way. We have a larger variety of 
any one line for Streetmen than an exclusive house of such line. We occasionally meet an inexperienced streetman. . 
who. has been '^bbii^ arocuid, buying a little from every Tom, IKck aail HiBiry, not knowing any better untH.' 
thcj. get directed to us; when lo! they open their eyes till they fairly drop out of their sockets when they discover 
hew tbey have been skinned by the various small fry. Yes, Streetmen have a ROCKY ROAD of it until they find 
N. ^nure &■ Co. to get their, supplies from. Now, boys, this is going to be a big money-making season. Gret into 
line. Get this ^iire Wisoer Catalogue and a supply of the Shitre Winner ^

THE BURLESQUE SITUATION 



There seems to be no concessions to 
.' Waad»:<iB.€illMr side m the burleaqoe

Boiaton affair some time since. In fact, 
botb clrcnlts are earnestly at work, and 
If we may believe current reports, de- 
velopments of a startling nature will 
take place ere the season opens a few 
^montba hence. The managers of the 
-"XSasfem drcult met in Cincinnati last 
i^weA In the office of Messrs. Heuck & 
" Fennessy at the People's Theatre. It 
T-was , their . regular annual business

years. It is said tbatk^tf^^llie;:!^ 

that wonld bL - any niim 
anxiety ^tlier before, at, or etfter the 
meeting. One of the managers who 
attended the meeting gave expression 
to the assertion that as Car as the Em-

James L. Keman as second vice-presi- 
dent. Mr. James E. Fennessy was 
elected secretary anl John H. Whallen 
treasurer. The board of directors is 
composed of the above officers in ad- 



It is given out tbat tbe policy of 
the Empire Circuit will be to expand 
Its territory. As to whether this will 
involve any conflict with the Eastern 
Circuit the managers are reticent. 
Plana -wa ■ iinmtflplail. It la ■— M, for 
the largMtiaM-Bgat lBvoitaiit circuit 
of theatres ever eooiblned for tbis de- 
partment of the theatrical business. 
It is understood tbat the circuit baa- 
been InereaiMa'to tmnfj'-Mvcn booses 
and hegotia'Uons ' are pending for five 
more, which, accordtngi to members at 
the meeting, will surely be taken into

The Empire Circuit as it now stands, 
with the exception of the five new

dition to these the Empire people have 
secured options on theatres in New 
Orleans, Memphis and NasbvUle which 
will be exercised providing the proper 
railroad facilities can be obtained. It 
is said that several new theatres will 
be taken InvfMB ..autem Adds. Tbe 
manageca assert Uiat they are ready to 
book their circuit without affiliation 
with any other associatloa or asso- 
datio^a that may not like tbe plans 
wliich were agreed upon at the Clnctn- 
batl meeting. This would aitpear to 
be an at>solute declaration of Inde- 
pendence. and in such spirit it is un- 
derstood that the Empire managers 
have considered It. The Empire in- 
terests declare themselvea in a position 
now to dictate absolutely the quality 
of entertainment v^hlch sliail be offered 
to the patrons. "They claim to have a 
sufficient number of applications for 
dates. to fill out a long season with 

alter- 

Ingis to be sdeeMB."' TOte d f peeteir g have 
declared tbat wliatever jtast differences 
may have been, these shall be laid 
aside when the qualltf of show is con- 
sidered.

have. In fact, declared their Ihdepend' 
ence in the matter, and are endeavor

in the western fields. Mr. Hollis E. 
Cooley, representing the Columbia 
Amusement; Co. and the Traveling 
Managers' Association, is said to have 
closed a deal whereby the Crawford 
Theatre of St. IiOuis has been added to

Mr. Ne£f, owner of the Vine Street 
Theatre, would neither affirm nor deny 
the 'report. Manager Ftimeasy Is in- 
clined to canstdor it a Blnff, as does 
iCrv ~ " 



Mr. Ooolejr. It Is reported, is upon a 
western tour negotiating for new 
houses for his circuit. There is also 
reports about Hopkins' Theatre in 
Inwiisinie. i^., entering the Eastern

writes an eastern oorraspoadent, now 
controls forty-two burlesque shows, 
anl recently acquired the <^yety 
Theatre in Pittsburg, the Trocadero

ety in Brooklyn, and is having a new 
theatre erected in New York. The 
men who engineered tbe deal there 
have left for Cincinnati where they 
expect to dose a deal tor a new thea-

factions. This country may be large

and tight rim surrounded by a strong 
tire of superiority and quality will be 
greatly desired by the bariesqae. loving

OBATH.OP MMB. RAABK 



Hedwig Niemann Raabe, noted ac-

the management of Helnrich Conrled. 
She was the wife of tlie celebrated 
tenor,* Albsrt mannni .aad as an- In- 
genue and BVench coniedy drama she 
made quite a reputation in Europe be- 
fore coming to this country. For years 
Mr. Conrled had been trying to get her 
to come here, and when he was man- 
ager of the Thalia Theatre be ottered 
her (30,000 for thirty performances, 
but she refused to come. S%ially. how- 
ever. In 1887, she accepted an engage- 
ment for twenty performances, four- 
teen in New York, five in Chicago and 
one in Clnidnnatl for which she re- 
ceived $16,000. Her engagement open- 
ed at the Star Theatre in New York 
on January 6, 1888. The performances 
were In German and the program

that time she continued on the stage, 
rising gradually from the humblest

promise then of the brilliancy which 
she developed in later years. "You 
are a goose and a good-for-nothing," 
exclaimed the Irate manager on one 
occasion. He who discovered so many 
stars and showed himself to be one of 
the most consummate theatrical man- 
agers of the age, failed to divine the

FAREWELL TO FOREPAUGH 



The Forepaush StlM^k Co^ nnder the 
management of Geo. F. and Is, Vw 
paugh Fish, closed Its season at RcMn- 
: ' eon's Opera House in Cincinnati Sat- 
urday, Kay 6, after one of the most 
successful engagements in the history 
of that worthy organidation. In Caet. 
Mr. Fish regards the season just closed 
- .the most successful, both financially 
and artlsticsdiy, that he has ever ex- 
perienced during hlB nineteen years 
of successful management. This Is 
aaying considerable l>ecause Mr. Fish 
. . fei' vaeocnlaed as one of tb* CDraMMt of 
> salbak managers in the eoontiT. *■ IMMI- 
. -.ttim which he has held for many years, 
■Vv It: must indeed be a proud moment 
at the close of the season the

■ lllgliMftiiiiWiM— Saturday. Informal 
r^ree^tfams were held upon the stage 
after these performances and It ap- 
peared that every spectator in the 
vast audience stepped to the stage to 
personally Impress upon the favorites 
the high degree of pleasure they had 
experienced each week of the note- 
worthy engagement. Miss LAvlnla 
Shannon and Mr. John Farrell, and 
every member of the company have 
, made countless numbers of friends 
'ViBaHny-'.-tts 'itost . atagf. in the Queen 
vClty.'' 'ite wy 'ti^ they have become 
favorites is expressing It mildly. They 
have become a fixture in Cincinnati 
theatricals. Their ret^tpearance is the 

^^uilSLBtle anffianees which have filled 

'.the Robinson every evening of the en- 
gagement. 

The company opened at the famous 
old playhouse last fail with adverse 
conditions confrantlng them. It had 

■ been said — had almost become prover- 

- bial — tliat success was not to be liad 
at Robinson's. Naturally the people 
flocked to that house the opening night 
because of curiosity. The second even- 

- Uig a large audience greeted the play- 
^rers because the first nighfs perform- 
ance had been a big success. Then 
curiosity disappeared and people came 

' . to Robinson's because they were sure

f>l.fiAiiB>ph. They have proved them-

ceived. Their able efforts have been 
crowned with brilliant results and 
their return at tiie.lwd «< tiie com*

'.^hastened the closing by two weeks. 
'^^VtM 'aeeUIent happened as the actress 
was ^leaving her carriage to enter the 
Belasco Theatre in the afternoon. She 
was a little late and left her carriage 
rather hurriedly. As she stepped to 
;^the sidewalk the horses gave a sud- 
•den. plunge forward. The heel of Mrs. 
Carter's shoe caught In the step and 
in endeavoring to loosen It the heel 
was wrenched off. With a cry oC pain 
the actress fell to the sidemlk and a 
physician summoned. 

Mr. Belasco was not at tlte tlMptiti 
when the accident happened, bat 
reached it soon afterward, and, seeing 
the seriousness of Mrs. Carter's in- 
Jury, Insisted on- dismissing the la^ 
audience. Mrs. Garten fc a w sw . woaM 
not hear of this plan, 'and wHh te- 
maikable fortitude went through the 
long perSormance. Two women were 
oonatantly at her side during the even- 
la» .Tttm pain and mrntUUag ' 



rapidly, and after the fourth act Mrs. 
Carter fainted. But she recovered 
quickly and went on for the final 
scenes attar the entaln waa held 
many mtantasL TIict* waa no evening 
performance..

The performance opens with a salate by two 
mammoth cannons wlUch saw service in tbe 
Boer War, followed by a grand display of all 
those who take part In tbe spectacle. The Boer 
offlcers were then Introduced Reparately. Gen-

and their achlevementa in the war wltb England. 
There were Scottish Highlanders, native Afri- 
cans upon their native ponies, veterans of the 
Boer War. both from the Boer 3Dd tlie English 
forces, marines, etc. Transport wagons, nsed 
alike In war and for conveyance during time 
of piece In parts where there are no railroads, 
were exhibited. Carta and other South African 
eqolpmenta, showing their mode of lite and 
travel, were also exhibited, much to the en- 
joyment of the vast audience. These are ail 
InstmctlTe, but there is an added interest when 
they are drawn by tb* oatiTc cattle and dllTen 
by native drivers, , asd WlMa Ihsr aie loilawsd 
by veteran soldias WfeS ItW MIHl SKVlW IS 
the Boer War. 

Feats of horsemanslilp between Briton, Boer. 
American, Canadian and others were exciting. 
Native Africana, ciad in] their native coatumes, 
raced atoond the arena a number of times, mnch 
to the pleasure of all present. Director Frank 
Finii, upon his famous trained horse Provero, 
made a big hit. Provero 1h certainly a maater 
at Cakewalk. He waltzes to tbe band mnale 
as gracefully as tbe mrmt ncevmplished dancing 
master. Ills i>erfurR]nrK-e was enthusiastically 
applauded and he etxin berame a uulveraal favor- 
ite. The favorite pastime of tbe cavalrymen 
In wmch each are provided with a red roaette 
which is placed upon bin rlRbt nboulder proved 
interesting. The object of tbe game is to 
capture these rosettes from their owners wbo 
are mounted upon horses. Its an exciting and a 
dangerous game and can only t>e attempted by 
tbe moat expert horseman, the quick man- 
oenvers of llia bora* and his agile deportroeat np- 
on the animal'a back playing an important part. 
Exblbltlon drills and dlfScult manoeuvering and 
other Interesting things were shown, all of them 
commanding the Instant and enthoalastlc ap- 
plause of aU the spectators. 

Then follow the t>att]ca. exact duplicates of 
those fearful engagements which determined 
the fate of South Africa. Tbe great engage- 
ment at Colensborg, where Generai Bnller waa 
so disastroualy defeated by the Bocta, waa moat 
vividly depleted. Volley after voOey of abota 
were showered npon tbe English army. Tbe 
roar of tbe cannon and the rapid Ore gnna In 
addition to tbe stem orders of those in com- 
mand, gare the scene all the realistic envlron- 
maata of tbe declaive and terrible engagements 
of present day warfare. The dramatic defeniie 
of Paardeberg and the final surrender of Gen- 
eral Cronje are ably represented and brought 
forth the greateat applause. What natural- 
nesa la exhibited. Tbe EngHHh forces charge 
only to be driven back with the loas of many 
men. Horaes are shot from imder the riders, 
riders fall from their steeds who mn about 
frantic. The rapid flre guns open upon the en- 
trenchments and another charge la made after 
a rally of forcea and the laat dramatic atand 
is made acaltuit the patriotic Boer. Volley after 
volley of deadly shots ring out from that smoke 
covered scene which thrills and tbrilla tbe Kpec- 
tator. At last the white flag la aeen. (lenernl 
Cronje Horrendeni tbe Fword with much manoeu- 
verinc on the part of the defeated and vlc- 
torloun armies. Tbe Hmoke clears away leaving 
to tbe view of tbe spectator tbe bloody fields 
fitrewn with the dying and the dead. The Red 
Cross forces are there working induatrloasly 
in their endeavora to aave the onextlngnlsbed 
lives. Then the lights are lowered and the 
spectator feela that be baa witneaaed one of 
the best and moat exciting parfonnaaoes ever

with nothing to foRow but land marks, aa tbe 
snow was belly deep to a dromedary. TIdngs

had better atlck to the camp." bot as the 
lieutenant was very snxious to t>e moving, we 
started. After dragging along for about aix 
miles the blizzard overtook us. snd we pitched 
camp for the nlgbt, right on the bald open flats. 
Tbe blizzard kept up for two days, and on the 
morning of tbe third day cleared away. it 
took us a whole day to cut a trail to tbe main 
divide, and with hard work we arrived In Rapid 
City pretty well tired out. There we waited 
for orders, whether to ahlp tlie Indiana or go 
by trail. We laid up for forty-eight hours to

Again the astute editor of the official

vile izmnagination. It is well known 
that the man who flings mud be-

President, Ijink's attempt to

The Committee on the New Tork 
Sttnation. squealed Hke a. stiM(k";i|lv 
when Sam Pratt, refused to sign an 
agreememt to keep oat of the blUimst- 
Inc boataMSS In New Tork for twenty- 
five yeais. ' It seems that Barney and 
ttSB crowd are also a little shy when it 
cornea to signing agreements. The 
stogqr comes firom Philadelphia that 
when Barney' wanted to buy the Bill- 
posttng^Slgn Co.'s plant he asked San 
Boblson to sign an agreement to keep 
ont of the business in that dty for a 
apedfled i>eriod. San said, "sure. If 
you will sign an agreement to keep out 
of Atlantic City." This Barney refused 
to do. San was a wise Quaker and 
knew the people be was dealing with. 

* • • 

San Bobison's refusal to sign is 
iBsnisx's ocnse for not completing the 
Ipondiaae. Bat the Joke Is on Barney; 
jhe had given San bis check for tS.OOO

Stewart is the southern member of the
